Hi everbody!

When I try using Xplode to add a registry entry to windows registry it doesn't give any results.

<execute display="Executing Registry Tweaks">

     <registry mode="write">

      [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run]
      "DAEMON Tools-1033"=-
           	 "DiskeeperSystray"=-
           	 "NeroFilterCheck"=-
           	 "NVMixerTray"=-
           	 "NvMEdiaCenter"=-
           	 "nwiz"=-
           	 "NvCplDaemon"=-
           	 "CTHelper"=-
           	 "iTunesHelper"=-
           	 "QuickTime Task"=-
           	 "NvMcTray"=-
           	 "NvCpl"=-

      [-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnceEx]

      [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\HideDesktopIcons\NewStartPanel]
      "{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}"=dword:00000000
      "{450D8FBA-AD25-11D0-98A8-0800361B1103}"=dword:00000000
      "{208D2C60-3AEA-1069-A2D7-08002B30309D}"=dword:00000000

      [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer]
           	 "NoRecentDocsMenu"=dword:00000001
  
     </registry>
     
     </execute>

The point with these registry entries is to remove all startup programs, but it doesn't work as they still start at windows logon.

Can't seem to see what's wrong here. Anyone?

If you can just copy/paste it into a *.reg, and run it that way, then I have no idea why XPlode isn't working.
All XPlode does is write the registry stuff to a temporary file, import that into the registry using regedit /s X4xxx.tmp, then deletes the temp file.

If doing it manually does work.... then perhaps you're going to have to do it manually, because it *looks* okay. Well, XPlode syntax does.

Add REGEDIT4 just after the registry tag at the top, but before the first registry key.

Don't.

Unless you're testing for yourself.
XPlode automatically adds Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 to the start of the file before running it.

The execute tags are not for registry entry's.
The registry tags are enough, as long as they are enclosed by an item tag.
So I suggest you replace the execute tags with item tags.
Why geeks like computers: unzip, strip, touch, finger, grep, mount, fsck, more, yes,fsck,fsck,fsck,umount, sleep.

Very perceptive.
I must admit, I don't generally read the XML syntax outside the offending tag.
